It does. I tried similar, but wasn't too happy with the base wanting to move.

I think I may look at welding in the Isofix loops or have the seat foam replaced with an added bolster on the edge.

Interesting response as we don't have an issue with the base wanting to move but I think our foam was changed when ours was previously re upholstered.

A new addition to this thread.

I have just ordered one of these, as the material slipping seems to be the issue.

I appreciate this is a rather old post but I'm relatively new to this forum and have experienced a similar issue. When the baby seat was belted in to the rear seats you could just spin it upside down so clearly not satisfactory. I have an old VW being restored in a local workshop and got them to put isofix points in the motorhome for me. The guy got me to buy a couple of isofix brackets from Ebay from a Ford (others would be suitable, these were what was readily available and worked in my van) and he bolted them in as he didn't want to be welding in the van due to the fire risk. Very happy with the result, much safer now 🙂

Probably not legal, hopefully, you have informed your insurance company of the changes too.

I actually hadn't considered whether it was legal or not... 🤔 either way I'd rather my son didn't go flying across the van in his seat in the case of a crash though which seemed highly possible with the ease at which I could just twist the seat out of the seatbelt 😳 I'll have to look into the legality of it.

None cab Passenger are always a problem, in coachbuilt vans the amount of bracing looks very extreme, some serious metal behind the anchorages, but I'm sure that tests were done and the manufacturers go a bit OTT to ensure there isn't a claim on that part of the structure failing, shame they don't go OTT on making the buggers watertight.
